Phil Jackson Repeats Anti-Gun Stance


"There’s a pretty strong argument in the NBA about carrying guns, a strong anti-gun policy," Jackson said. "It’s really hard to regulate because it’s part of the Constitution. It’s part of what we are in this country. I’m personally against handguns, (and) I think this is something that in itself draws its own problems."

Jackson said he used to deliver a message to his players about carrying guns.

"I haven’t talked about it in the last couple of years," he said. "The NBA has stepped up and talked about it. Their (security) department has talked about it with the players. They certainly got a lesson this weekend that ought to make them alert."
